How can you solve a problem you can’t identify?
Well, you can’t, which is why teeth grinding can be tough to treat unless you visit your dentist regularly. We can spot the signs of wear and tear on teeth that point to this behavior, but otherwise, most people don’t realize they’re putting so much pressure on their teeth and jaw because it’s probably happening while they’re sleeping.
Check out this ADA video about bruxism, the technical term for teeth grinding, and why you should visit us soon for proper treatment, such as a nightguard, and lasting relief from its painful symptoms.
